of the time. >> california's governor called it quackery because he is and he helped ban it which it should be. now the crackdown may go nationwide. yesterday, california congresswoman jackie spear announced a nonbinding resolution to encourage each state to make the same move that california did. it's called the shock revolution. shock is for stop harming our kids. some kids explain what the therapy did to them. >> i am telling my story now in hopes that others will speak out to put an end to this sham. the ex-gay industry did nothing but provide me and my family with false lies mass ka raiding as science. >> representative jackie spear joins me now live from capitol hill. congresswoman, thank you so much for joining us. my first question to you, why not just introduce legislation to ban it? why the nonbinding resolution? >> it is a state function to regulate professions, so it is incumbent on the states to look at the scope of practice within professions and determine whether certain practices are appropriate or not. the american psychological association and the american psychiatric associa
two states in the nation actually explicitly permit pornography to be filmed, and that's california and new hampshire, of all places. >> so new hampshire would be the place where they would amscray? they would have a long flight. >> that's right. that's right. the industry does say that they would like to perhaps go to nevada, but nevada's state supreme court actually hasn't explicitly ruled that pornography can be filmed there. >> huh. so, ron, they want to -- the industry before it pulls up stakes and moves the entire, you know, show across the country, they want to actually sue about this ballot measure. my question is -- i'm not going to suggest for a moment that you know all the legal ins and outs, but do they have merit in actually launching a suit, and if they are successful, what does that mean to the voters of california who have said that they feel it's important to have a safe work environment? >> well, the porn industry says that, you know, this measure violates their first amendment rights to film -- to, you know, produce their film the way they want to. now, the aids a
in california. what happens if the court decides not to hear this one? >> it is tricky, don, because first of all, nothing is simple to the supreme court. it depends what the court does. the court could formally reject that case, which means the lower court ruling stands, so for proposition 8, a federal appeals court already ruled that the ban which passed as a referendum by the way is unconstitutional. so the supreme court rejecting the case would basically make same sex marriage legal again in california. this is another big point, though, the supreme court could simply decide just to sit on the case, not hear it this term, not reject it either and that basically would put the decision off to a later date. and then at that time, california would just sort of be stuck in a legal limbo until the court makes a decision. >> all right. so we'll just basically what you're saying we'll have to wait and see what happens on this one, right? >> yeah. >> several cases deal with doma, the defense of marriage act, is what we're talking about. what is at the heart of those cases and how likely is it t
wade into this issue, one of the cases they can hear is the appeal of california's prop 8, the ballot metro that bans same-sex marriage. what's at stake? is. >> the first word is if, and so you have to reiterate that we don't know if that decision to take up this case is going to come today or even this term. it could and it might, and there's speculation that it will, but if the supreme court has anything, it's unpredictable, and on the proposition 8 case, there's a specific question. can a state referendum abolish same-sex marriage after the courts have already ruled that it's legal? remember, that statewide vote to ban gay marriage was in response to courts in california legalizing same-sex marriage. assuming the supreme court sticks to this specific issue, it would have big implications for, say, california, but wouldn't necessarily be a sweeping ruling that would impact same-sex marriage all over the country. >> joe, talk a little bit about these cases that are challenging the federal defense of marriage act, known as doma. this is essentially the law that defines marriage betwee
. most of northern california is expecting 8 to 10 inches of rain by sunday. that spells flood watches. they're already out for several areas. the wind speeds also could reach up to 70 miles per hour. that means trees could be toppled and also brings down power lines and creates a lot of problems for residents. so workers have been doing what you're seeing on your screen right now. dragging away scorched trees to prevent them from actually causing the problems and also prevent landslides. also, it is very hot in the rockies and central plains right now. temperatures, believe it or not, 20 to 25 degrees above normal for the next five days. and for people who live there, the temperatures are not expected to go back to normal until the middle of the week. so we're keeping a really close eye on some of this nasty weather, and troubling weather, as well. whether it is on the west coast or on the east coast, because a young lady named lindsey lohan is brewing up yet another storm in the form of trouble. i.e., another arrest. we usually just shy away from this, because it's become a bit commo
's in paramount, california, where there are big crowds in the parking lot. who is protesting the retail chain and what are they actually hoping to accomplish? >> they're not all this from this store, and the reason why they are targeting the most important shopping day of the year to be out here in front of these stores is to remind shoppers and management that there are some serious problems here with the workers, with pay and health care. this is something twheer seeing not just in the store, but marshally across the country. from texas to maryland. there are employees who are not showing up for work. here's what one employee told us. >> we don't want customers to walk from wal-mart. this is how we pay our bills. with them this is how the store stays open. it's awesome. what we're trying to do is get a point across. that's all we're trying to do. wal-mart, help us. >> reporter: so trying to make a point. the question is has wal-mart management heard? at this point it does appear that management and these protests who are outside aren't going to be coming to the table to have any real open h

in california this summer. and that, of course, is still being investigated. and so, you know who knows if charges are going to be brought. but i think we can all agree if you're committing a crime, like shoplifting, certainly you should pay the legal price, but should you pay the ultimate price with your life? i don't think so. >> and then depending on the charge, i guess to your point, we'll see whether or not walmart is held responsible. we'll check back. sunny hostin on the case, thank you very much. >>> to this it has a lot of you talking, we'll talk about what happened on stage. stones fans, anywhere, as the rolling stones celebrate 50 years in the music business. >>> plus, memphis finally unveiling its very first inductees for the city's music hall of fame. cue the music here. elvis made the list, of course. we're talking memphis. you might be surprised who else got the nod.
